Hello, I have a few linked fields in one of my tables. All have linked fine except for 1 and it will not populate. Can’t figure out what I’m doing incorrectly.

In the first picture Vmix, URL and Password are all linking fine to the Vmix table. Session type is linking fine to the master agenda table

In the second picture, Block # won’t populate. It and Start day and time are both linked to the MAster agenda. As you can see, start day and time has populated fine.

Any suggestions?

Hello @Barry_Seidenstat!

So for a lookup field to populate it needs to know:

  1. the corresponding table to pull from (based on the linked record)
  2. the field you’d like to pull in

I think I might need to know a little more about your table setup to get to the bottom of this.
So I’d like to ask:

  1. What field on your Presenter/Moderator table links back to the Master Agenda table (assuming there is a Master Agenda table)?
  2. What field on the Master Agenda table are you trying to pull from? (a screenshot of the Master Agenda table would be amazing if you’d feel comfortable sharing one)
  3. Could you take a screenshot of how the lookup field your are trying to fix is currently configured? (like the one below)
